The physiological role of somatodendritic dopamine release in the rat substantia nigra was evaluated with a combination of dual probe microdialysis and simultaneous motor performance tests on an accelerating rod. Three main findings support a modulating influence of somatodendritic dopamine release on motor coordination. (1) The rod performance tests were… CONTINUE READING
